EDIT I might just have MCE send me a new enclosure (as a few snaps on mine were broken upon receipt). Then just get a bag for the enclosure. I don't like that the front is totally open, but I REALLY do like the actual optibay itself. It's really beefy and fits nicely and fully secures down my HDD in place. ---------------------------- I'm pretty disappointed with the external enclosure for my optical drive from the MCE kit... REALLY disappointed. It's cheap-ass black plastic. The front of the enclosure is COMPLETELY open, it leaves my optical drive fully exposed for any dirt or other stuff to get in there while traveling. Also the screws that screw in from the back that are "suppose" to hold the optical drive in place inside the enclosure don't reach the optical drive to actually hold anything in place. I'm going to return it for the maxupgrades kit. Anybody with experience with both or either? The maxupgrades kit is $10 cheaper and comes with a CNC machined aluminum enclosure for the optical drive. I WOULD NOT (REPEAT: NOT) RECOMMEND MCE OPTIBAY KIT TO ANYBODY WHO WANTS AN EXTERNAL ENCLOSURE. COMPLETE GARBAGE IN MY MIND. I just had a completely diff. impression of it in my mind I guess. The actual optibay is decent, pretty heavy-duty. The holes didn't line up perfectly though as it required some finagling. Just little things I didn't think I should have to deal with for spending $99 when I can buy a $10 kit on ebay and deal with the same things. I'll update when the maxupgrades kit arrives with how the enclosure is.
